References:

From Carl Salbach catalog, 1927: SHASTA. This new white of different parentage than Purissima, is also entirely distinct in style and effect and well worthy of being named for California’s great white-capped mountain. The 40-inch stalks which are well but high branched bear the magnificent flowers proudly aloft. These are snow white, with a few faint amber reticulations on the haft and are of fine form and excellent substance. It blooms late with us so was not seen by the early visitors who so admired Purissima. $ 10.00.
From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: SHASTA (Mohr 1927) M. 40". This new white is of different parentage than Purissima and is entirely different in style and effect and well worth being named for California’s great snowcapped peak. The stalks are well, but highly branched, and bear the fine flowers proudly aloft. They are pure white, with a faint amber reticulation on the haft and are of excellent substance. At first not hardy here, but we believe we have thoroughly acclimated our stock. $2.50.
